A CALIFORNIA horseback rider has been arrested after she allegedly tried to hire a hitman to kill her estranged husband and dispose of his body.
Tatyana Remley, 42, has been charged with incitement to murder and two counts of gun possession, according to police.
The pair previously directed production of the acrobatic equestrian show Valitar, which collapsed after just a few performances in 2012.
According to the San Diego County Sheriff’s DepartmentTatyana told an undercover cop about her assassination plan to kill her estranged husband, Mark Remley.
“She provided detailed information about how she wanted her husband killed and his body disposed of,” the sheriff’s department said in a press release.
“Remley brought three other firearms and US dollars as a deposit for the murder,” police added.
Tatyana was charged with incitement to murder, having a concealed weapon in a vehicle not registered with the Department of Justice and having a loaded firearm in a public place.
In an interview with The Coastal NewsHer husband Mark has claimed he learned of his wife’s plot to kill him in early July.
The news outlet reported Mark claimed a mutual friend of the couple told him that Tatyana offered the friend $2 million to kill him.
“Mark said he informed the police of their alleged attempt to have him killed and that they were able to arrest her a month later through an undercover operation,” the news outlet reported.
“He also claimed that just days after making the offer to her boyfriend, his wife intentionally set fire to the Rancho Reposos home they once occupied in early July.”
The sheriff’s department has confirmed it responded to a fire call at the couple’s home earlier in the summer, but is reportedly still investigating the incident.
According to The Coast News, the couple had a volatile relationship for 12 years.
Since their marriage in 2011, they have filed for divorce and reconciled multiple times.
Tatyana filed the most recent divorce petition in May, claiming that her husband verbally and physically abused her, stole and destroyed her property and cut her off financially, the same source says.
Before Tatjana’s alleged assassination plan came to light, The San Diego Union Tribune published an article about the couple’s equestrian show, Valitor, which would become a 10-month hit in five cities.
However, according to the news outlet, it turned out to be a complete disaster.
The show’s original director, Erik Martonovich, told the publication the pair are “not a horse person, nor are they a show person.”
“As the show took shape, the Remleys went from being ruthless financiers to tightropes, according to former employees. Vendors and employees have sued the couple for millions of dollars in unpaid salaries and bills,” the article reads.
Tatyana was Mark’s second wife.
He wasn’t Warren Buffet; However, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune, he received $26 million when his family’s tech company was sold in 2002.
Tatyana pleaded not guilty to the solicitation charges of murder and possession of a weapon.
Accordingly, she is being held without bail in a California prison People.
She is scheduled to appear in court in October.
San Diego Sheriff’s Department Deputy David LaDieu has told the US Sun that they are not authorized to release any further information on the case at this time.
The US Sun has reached out to Tatyana’s lawyer for comment.
